RHCSA / RHCE - RHEL 8

I'll be attempting my RHCSA next week. Since RHEL 8 beta is out, how soon will it be before certs for RHEL 8 be available ?  Would it make sense for me to wait for RHEL 8 certs to be available or go ahead and attempt RHCE for RHEL 7 in 2-3 months as I initially planned ?

Hi Ben,
So generally Red Hat does not release public courseware on beta products. There is no definitive date for when the full release of RHEL 8 will become available since beta just hit yesterday. The curriculum and certification teams generally try to release course and exam updates shortly after the full produxt release, though that is subject to change.
I would recommend that you go ahead and pursue RHEL 7 certs given your timeframe.
Good.luck and let us know how we can help.

Is it possible,if I go for RHCSA certification in RHEL7 , and if by the time I prepare for RHCE, The RHEL8 gets released. Then is it possible to be RHCSA certified in RHEL7 and RHCE certified in RHEL8?. Waiting for a reply soon. Please help.

Hello community,

Could you please answer the question of Lakshya?

Is it feasible to gain the RHCSA in RHEL 7 and then being certified in RHEL 8 for RHCE?

Or whoever became RHCSA certified in RHEL7 and wants to become also in RHCE in RHEL8(after the release date of RHEL 8) must first become again RHCSA certified in RHEL8?

Thank you in advance

@ralii It is now official about version 8 I will be attempting RHCE this month end. Since RHEL 8 beta is out, would it make sense to wait for RHCE 8 certs to be available or go ahead and attempt RHCE7 end this month. Could you please guide?

@Arpana - Be careful with hopping between RHEL 7 and RHEL 8 RHCSA and RHCE exams. The objectives do change with major releases like this. Watch the list of objectives on the website, or as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, reach out to the training group in your respective region/country.

As I looked them over, the RHCSA is "similar" but the RHCE is "quite different"....

Definitely get started on the 7.6 version RHEL or CentOS. Vast majority of the subjects of interest regarding RHCSA will be the same.
